Analyze taxonomies, clinical vocabularies, terminologies and nomenclatures used in health care settings.
Your boss, the Director of Human Resources at a prominent academic hospital, has asked you to prepare a two-part expository PowerPoint presentation to new employees during orientation.
Your PowerPoint is to familiarize new staff from both clinical and administrative departments with the most common clinical and healthcare management terminology, to which they will be exposed and expected to use on their new job. Terminology shared should include aspects of taxonomies, clinical vocabularies, terminologies, and nomenclatures used in healthcare settings. A minimum of three slides should be dedicated to each department.
Finally, include a section devoted to how management and clinical departments communicate for patient care. Provide examples for at least two levels of care (inpatient, outpatient, nursing facility, etc.).
Provide specific examples of concepts, topics, definitions, and other elements noted in the assignment introduction.
While preparing to complete this presentation, think about the following questions:
What information will you include in your PowerPoint slides?
What notations will you make in the speaker’s notes for your boss to stress?
How will you organize the material so that it will be presented effectively for new employees exposed to terminology that you use daily?
